Findings Worth Finding: Colored Copper Wire

Colored Copper Wire is a great beading/craft item to keep in your studio. Wire is just handy to have available when you need it. When you need it you need it and it's really inconvenient to have to run to the store. I found a great website http://www.parawire.com/craftstore.html that has 30 different colors and 11 different gauges of wire. The colors are fantastic. 4 color samples are below.

This wire works great with a Jig to make fun colorful designs. Make sure you use Nylon Jaw Pliers when using colored wire so it doesn't mar the color on the wire.
I have a large spool of 18 gauge wire in Purple and a smaller spool in Neon Amethyst. Great to have around especially in my fave color...Purple!
